Up to now, the explanations are :

- to soak up any leaks

- to avoid distracting the rider

As for the hump, it might well be a case of "all the above", but there might be some other explanation, and a clear first use from which all the rest trickled down. Track guys should probably know that...
Guys, sorry for picking up an old post, but I've been having a small leak on my front reservoir and can't seem to get it fixed...

Pulled cap and seals off, cleaned all up with methylated spirits, sucked out 3 to 4 ml of fluid and put everything back together, hoping that this would 100% fix the issue...

Got on the bike this morning to get to work (highway riding, "0" lean angles, gentle braking throughout), and noticed that there's still a bit of a leak at the front of the reservoir. Got to work a bit pissed off, and got on the phone to my local dealer to learn if they source the seals only... Much to my disappointment they don't. Only sell the full unit at a whopping $150 (AUD). I checked worldoftriumph and it's the same story... So here I am, jumping for joy

Things I'll try;

> Re-do the cleaning again, but this time not tighten the seal as much... Maybe I overtightened it and that has caused a small lift on the seal...

> The reservoir has a locating pin to the mounting bracket, that doesn't allow the reservoir to sit 100% vertical... And therefore, there's always fluid "pushing" towards one of the sides of the reservoir... Funny enough, this is the area of the reservoir where I think the weak point is... Maybe either move bracket to allow for vertical reservoir, or snap locating pin...

> If all else fails, get one of those funky reservoir sweatbands that will soak up any fluid that ends up finding a way out of the reservoir...

Any thoughts or comments are very welcome


Life's so much better on a bike!

I just noticed a minor leak as well from my 4 hour ride yesterday. It's coming from the hose that comes from reservoir side to the plunger side. Its definetely on the plunger side. Very small so I took the clamp that was over the hose and moved it a bit lower while applying force. Hopefully that fixes it. If not I will investigate further.
